11Frequently
asked questions
Is the LCD screen touch-enabled?
The LCD screen is not touch-enabled. After you
turn on the PhotoAlbum, you can use the touch
panel to control the PhotoAlbum.
 
Can I use the PhotoAlbum to delete photos
on a memory card?
Yes, it supports operations to delete photos
on an external device, such as a memory card.
Ensure that you enable the deletion function on
a memory card available on the PhotoAlbum.
 
Why does my PhotoAlbum not show some of
my photos?
• The Photoalbum plays only JPEG photos
(maximum: 8000 x 8000 pixel resolution)
and Progressive JPEG photo (Up to 1024
x 768 pixels).
• Ensure that these photos are not damaged.
 
Why does the PhotoAblum not go into autooff status after I set it?
Ensure that you set the real time, auto-off time,
and auto-on time correctly. The PhotoAlbum
automatically turns off its display exactly at the
auto-off time. If the time has already passed for
the day, it starts to go into auto-off status at the
specified time from the next day.
 
Can I increase the memory size to store more
pictures on the PhotoAlbum?
No. The internal memory of the PhotoAlbum
is fixed and cannot be expanded. However, you
could switch between different photos by using
different storage devices on the PhotoAlbum.
 
The PhotoAlbum is ON but the PhotoAlbum
does not respond anymore. What can I do?
Ensure that the PhotoAlbum is turned on. Then,
use a pin to trigger the RESET button located
on the back to restore the system.
